where i am right now was shut down because of a suspicious package going to senator richard shelby's office. in another office building there were two floors effectively on lockdown because of suspicious packages there. actually they were given the all clear. but it does give you the sense of how much people are paying much more attention to even questions about whether anything is suspicious around in some state offices, carl levin of michigan, they, too, issued press releases saying they had suspicious letters coming and they turned it over to officials. you know, with going back to your initial question, jake, with regard to anthrax, definitely you get the feeling that they're saying there are no definite connections but you have that sense of anxiety you did during the anthrax attacks which were just not too long after 9/11. >> and, of course, that vote you're talking about, that is the bill from the west virginia democrat joe manchin and pennsylvania republican pat toomey. you're saying it is expected to go down. one last question for you, dana. what if anything will the senat
to other senators as well. involving senator shelby of alabama and now learning about this letter, our pete williams has confirmed that was headed towards the white house. we don't know whether this is related to the attack on the boston marathon. after 9/11 we had the threat of anthrax lertds. more than just a threat. a couple of people lost their lives in washington, d.c. turned out not to be related to the al qaeda attack on new york and washington. everybody is on a mump higher level of alert. we are going to see what the threat is about to the extent that authorities can learn it, carl. >> well said, john. certainly given some of the false positives we know related to the wicker letter, we're going to have to continue to watch it for further developments. let's get to rick santelli this morning and check on the markets. hey, rick. >> hi, carl. my thing this week has been that when you have very complicated issues with ha lot of regulations and rules, the murkiness, well, it's about interpretation for those you see eye to eye with. it's about strict enforcement for your foes. hey, rob.
in tennessee on this eve of the 45th anniversary of dr. martin luther king being assassinated, the shelby county, tennessee, recorders office released videos never before seen, videos showing james earl ray, after he was arrested for dr. king's murder. the tapes include, and i'll admit this is kind of weird, strangely, the whole very long, detailed process of james earl ray being strip searched as he's brought into the jail. as indicated by the pixelation work that you see here. there's lots going on in today's news, good, bad, and quite unexpectedly revealing and weird. >>> but we start tonight's show with second amendment remedies. in the midterm elections in 2010, nevada republicans nominated a woman named sharron angle to run for senate in nevada. sharron angle was going to try to unseat harry reid in nevada. she was antiestablishment, tea party endorsed, super, super conservative, and this race in nevada was supposed to be a cake walk. harry reid's numbers were really bad. everybody expected harry reid to lose his job. everybody knew that the 2010 election was going very republican o
to senator shelby's office here in the building where i am. and also perhaps to some in the hart office building. so this warning from the senate sergeant in arms says do not accept sealed envelopes. i should tell you that we understand from our lisa desjardin, that police were investigating the person who might have been delivering the bags with the envelopes. we don't know yet what came of that questioning. there's been an all-clear here in the russell building as well as the hart building. certainly does make you realize that there is a heightened sense of alert and anxiety here that what usually are kind of ho-hum alerts or warnings that we get from capitol police are not taken that way at all right now. >> so, dana, the two letters -- one letter sent to senator wicker of mississippi, the other letter sent to the president, and i just want to be precise, you say they had similar language if not identical language in both of these envelopes? is that right? >> yes, that's right. that's what a law enforcement official is telling cnn's joe johns. it's the language i just read to you on
